Remembering The Battle of the Somme



A recent donation of embroidered postcards and two WWI medals form part of a display in the main gallery, to commemorate the battle which took place 100 years ago this year, claiming the lives of over a million men,



The embroidered cards were created during WWI by the women of France and Belgium, who sold them to the troops to send home to their loved ones.



The British War Medal and the Victory Medal were issued to all those who fought during WWI and were often nicknamed “Mutt” and “Jeff”.

NEWS



Last October, when we took our Battlefield Tour to France and Belgium, we were very lucky to be accompanied by Victoria Cook, a BBC Reporter who subsequently edited and broadcast four three minute features about Thame Remembers on BBC South News.


We were thrilled to learn that Victoria had been nominated for a Royal Television Society award in the category “ Best Feature or Strand within a News or Magazine Programme” for this coverage. It was great news to learn that her excellent work had also been recognised by her peers.

In sharing the news of her nomination Victoria wrote “Everyone here in the newsroom is really pleased that your project captured the judges’ attention. It is truly deserving of a nomination. It has also prompted many of us to watch back the series, nearly four months on (where did that time go?!). It really is great to hear all the stories again and to see the scale of the project you have taken on. I really hope I can win it for all of you. If I don’t, it certainly won’t be a reflection of the project. We had such a lot of lovely feedback about the BBC coverage. The views of the films online were well into the tens of thousands.”
